Amsterdam King’s Day boating tips

Boating in Amsterdam on Kingsday? Good plan! Read these tips for a great day on the canals in Amsterdam!

  • Bring some drinks and snacks on board
  • Speaking of drinks, don’t forget to bring not only alcoholic beverages, but also soft drinks and water. It would be a shame if the party ended early!
  • Bring ice or a cool box to keep your drinks cool.
  • Check the weather forecast in advance, but also be prepared for other weather conditions. As we are used to in the Netherlands, the sun can shine in the morning, but later in the day it can get quite chilly or even rain. So take a poncho with you, just to be sure!
  • Do you want to be fully prepared for the weather on King’s Day? Then also bring an extra vest, sunglasses, sun block and something like a cap or hat. Don’t worry, we have plenty of room on our boats to store all your gear safely.
  • It can be a bit chilly on the water, so dress warm!
